No, Susan Collins, He Did Not Learn From the Impeachment

Making mistakes is part of the human experience. The purpose of mistakes, as we all know, is to learn from those mistakes.

During the impeachment trial last week, Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) stated the following:

“I believe that the President has learned from this case” and that Trump “will be much more cautious in the future.”

If you know who learned anything, he will continue to get off scot-free. He will continue to have enablers who will yes him instead of doing what is right for the country. The firing of Alexander Vindman and Gordon Sondland stated that much.

The only way to teach him a lesson was to impeach him. But that opportunity has come and gone.

This is the man who claimed he could shoot someone and not lose voters.

The lesson is that the Republicans that voted to acquit you know who will hopefully learn is that the real power is with the voting public. Come November, we may decide we no longer want them in office.

Shame On You, Susan Collins

There is a special place in hell for women who don’t support other women, especially when it comes to allegations of sexual assault.

Senator Susan Collins voted to proceed with the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to join the Supreme Court. The result is that her opponent has received a tidy sum from voters in donations.

The message coming from the Senate is clear. The voice of the American woman does not matter. Her experience does not matter, especially when it comes to rape and/or sexual assault. While the woman has to live for the rest of her life with the emotional trauma that comes with sexual assault, the man is free and clear to move on with his life as if nothing happened.

The law of the land is innocent until proven guilty, as Mitch McConnell pointed out. However, the accusations against Judge Kavanaugh are severe enough to create questions of his ability to be impartial and non-partisan.

I started writing this post yesterday. As of this morning, Judge Kavanaugh is the newest member of the Supreme Court.

What is done cannot be undone. However, the midterms are coming. American voters will have their say when it comes to who will representing them in Washington.  While only time will tell how the makeup of the Senate will change, I have a feeling that some Senators may find themselves out of a job.
